A DIY patek? 🤓

 By: ChristianDK : May 14th, 2019-06:34
Very cool - that should be a lot of fun

You do not dismantle your own watch , obviously.

It is a calibre 215 they give you with a watch maker guiding you and a video tutorial. It lasts about two hours

I’m sure that you will enjoy the experience.

Keep us posted, you lucky chap 🥂

What exactly will this consist of?

 By: LX : May 15th, 2019-03:27
I have only bought two Patek Philippe watches from my AD, so I obviously did not get such package.

It is a session where you disassemble and assemble back a caliber 215 from Patek

Not sure it is linked to the nb of watches / value you buy .... I have bought 1 nautilus and was invited to visit the manufacture and 2 or 3 years after bought another watch (a QP) and was invited to the atelier. Although i m going there on a regular basi... 

I agree with Chris

I can only speak for the London salon and they are fantastic people. They do keep in touch round the year with invitations to dinners, viewing and sporting events etc. I have not bought many watches or spent millions either

Hopefully put it back together lol

Have fun

Totally agree! Patek has always been very good to me .

I never had any special treatment from Rolex despite numerous purchases , just a number ..

Those Master Class events are so enjoyable

And you get to know great friends as well! And the watchmaker screwdriver is a nice gift. Best. René

A tip:

 By: Rapwatch : May 14th, 2019-10:29
Don’t squeeze the tweezers too tight. Just a light grip. Saves screws going flying 😀

Don’t worry

 By: renerod : May 14th, 2019-18:21
Screws will fly anyway, it’s just part of the learning. Just enjoy tons. It must be a real delight to fiddle with a Patek movement. I’ve only taken master classes with JLC and ETA movements. Best. René

Sounds like a great event - smart of them to not do the same with 27 movements 😂

Done this with IWC ones but never with Patek. Have fun

A nice solution by PP

It is a great activity ...

 By: chris7509 : May 14th, 2019-11:00
I have done it last year and indeed it is a superb activity to do + you will enjoy diner etc with your fellow students ! Really worth it i would go back immediately if proposed ! cheers.

Thanks Chris , I am hoping that the group will be eclectic and fun

 By: centurionone : May 14th, 2019-11:05
We had a riot with the group from last year’s factory visit ! I will go easy on the booze this year. Lesson learned !

Oh wow

 By: chris7509 : May 14th, 2019-13:00
No spoil on the activity itself but this is a quick pic of the diner we had after As you can see location is pretty special ...  

Looking forward to my two day trip
